Thanks Bob. :) I have some other requests involving tropicals so I need to be assured of quality finishes.

That's a beauty for sure! I imagine your customer is very happy
If you do want to finish Bloodwood, or any oily tropical hardwood, you can simply wipe it down with some acetone to remove the surface oils. Then apply a thin coat/swipe of Shellac. Then, you're set to go with the poly!
This commissioned piece was built of Rosewood, Bloodwood, and Satinwood; the wood was provided by the client. I found out, after the fact, that rosewood does not like polyurethane; should have googled it first. However, was able to remove the poly and successfully replace with two coats of polish and all is well.
